As locals, we often have mini stay-cations on gulf beaches and we were sad when our favorite hotel was booked for the night we wanted to get away. I stumbled upon some reviews for pierhouse 60 and couldn't believe the price vs positive reviews and booked straight away. We were in a gulf view king.
Check in was a breeze. We arrived at 12:00pm and wanted to get ourselves checked in so that we could use the parking facilities. Surprise! Our room was already available and we were handed our keys. We opened the door to the room and were delighted with what we saw. Rooms are immaculate and far bigger than the shoe boxes you usually pay for on the beach. For the same price as an interior room at the hilton, we got a spacious and tastefully decorated room with a great view. Nice size bathroom and fridge and microwave.....perfect for if your staying a little longer and would like to store food. Comfortable bed, heavy curtains...smelled like clean linen :-)
Now, I'd like mention one thing. This is not a resort. There is no room service, no restaurant. It is a hotel. This suits us fine as resort style vacationing is not our thing. I object to resort fees and feeling like I have to tip every time someone opens a door or smiles at me. The rooms and hotel look like more stars than rated, but it is just a hotel. Staff are nice, breakfast is basic. The rooftop bar is nice. Great views, strong drinks and there was an acoustic duo playing who were pretty good. The beach is across the street, but clearwater beach has done a great job of making sure pedestrians can safely cross.
I enjoyed my stay immensely. Again great hotel. Not a resort. We can't wait to come back.
